Question about Whirlpool Ovens
Oven will turn on but after a few seconds it shuts off and shows the E1 F5 code again
Thanks tech17. I did get it to work. I had jostled it some before but applied a bit more muscle and it started making some noise and then latched.

Self clean latch will not lock
4. Measure latch switch (unlatch = switch open, CAUTION - oven light contacts are closed). Replace switch if defective.
5. If corrections are made in any step, reconnect power to control. Press and hold any key for 1 minute to clear R failure code from memory. F2 will appear. Press CANCEL and observe for 1 minute to ensure operation is correct.
6. If failure remains, disconnect power and replace control.

F5 fault codes are latch mechanism problems. One means the latch won't lock, the other means the latch won't unlock. Odd you're getting both...

For some reason I get the same error code every time we have a power outage. If you push and hold the "lower off" button for about ten or 15 seconds it will unlock and reset. Hope this helps.

The lock latch is located directly in the center upper portion of the door. It is a hook shaped latch that lock by turning downward. This lock gets stuck in this position which causes the e1 f5 error code. Locate the latch through the vent holes in the upper front of the oven door. Insert flat headed srew driver into vent hole and gently push latch up to a horizontal position & simply open door. Once unlocked, push cancel on the control panel.This will clear the error code and resolve the issue.
